Ok if you want to present a new declaration then go ahead. Maybe its not half bad. But remember its a political document....ok dozy "Jesus" boy. Some like the baby Jesus others the one with a sword coming out of His mouth. But at anyrate...

the purpose of my thread is to determine how it would
be wisest to go about such a process.
Ok. So then again I ask...what exactly is it you're trying to accomplish? Is your goal to rally support? To help yourself affirm your beliefs? To create an avenue for others to be able justify rebellion against powers they feel a guilty allegiance to? Or are you trying to remind others that they are sovereign to themselves and have no reason to owe allegiance to governments and corporations in the first place?
Jefferson wrote his own document, specific to his particular purposes. You can do the same. But it's often easier to get where you're going when you have a clear idea of what your destination is.

The Declaration includes a list of acts imposed by the Crown that give cause as to why independence was necessary. More important would be a statement that given similar circumstances we will act again.

The Declaration of Independence is an out dated document. It achieved its purpose, but for a brief time. Soon after we, our forefathers enslaved each other once again under the shackles of the Constitution of the United States.
It is my opinion that a new Declaration is needed. Thus, I have not only signed such a document, but written into my heart, and live by it.
See the Plan at the bottom of my posts, if you haven't already done so.

Oh wow, IAM. I just checked out your thread.
You beat me to it.
The Declaration of Independence - Outdated?

No man or nation is an island. Declaring independence is one thing, affirming it is quite another.

Not another one of these "I need to dust off the declaration of independence in order to justify killing Americans" threads.
That's all these are, you want an excuse to go out and kill your fellow Americans. Well, just a reality check here. This is what happens.
You re write your new "License to murder your fellow countrymen" and then you get a lot of stars and flags and in the end, you do nothing.
You won't DO anything, you just want to act like a big man. You are pissed at the government (probably because a cop took your "bag") and so you want other people to start your revolution for you. You won't actually do anything at all because you are actually content living the way you do. You aren't happy because of some lame issue that you already have the power to change locally if not nationally that you actually refuse to do anything about. So instead you come online and spout how you need to write another "Declaration of Independence" where you list out all the grievances you have with the government, in a pathetic and sad attempt to have others do your work for you.
